Popular Pressure Poems
You
by Gautam Krishna

You are but one of many, who seek to see the dream,
Chasing the unknown, pressured by your own self esteem,
You are bound by nature, the rules wider than the seas,
An un-caged bird wanting to be set free,
Those stars that you can't count, and those you wish to be,
Those years that you look back, wondering "Oh, what might've been"

How long?
by Author Reinvented

How long
Can pressure be applied
Before the coal turns to dust and you realize there is no diamond?

How long
Will you keep saying "You've tried"
Before dismay replaces trust and you finally stop trying?

How long

Butterfly Beauty
by YingDu Le

You see that butterfly?
It’s beautiful right, but isn’t it also a bit scary, when looking at plain sight.
I don’t know about you,

Is it something you can measure by asking the population’s opinion?
Is it something I have to conform to depending in what beauty world I live in?
I am my own person, and I don’t want it any other way, but the butterfly is sometimes still there, flying around, questioning and pestering you.
But when you touch it it’s apparently dangerous,
Because then it’s not able to fly anymore.

Too much These Days
by Beatrice Knox

I know you’re out there

Brawling until I can I longer think
Until I can no longer feel
Uselessness cuts my legs
Isolation feeds on my tears
Each breathe runs fast
Oxygen is escaping quickly

studies of a confused student
by elle bosphora

Said i wanted to be the best
And my life was all planned
I guess i was wrong all along
Cuz right now nothing goes as calculated

Sitting at my table with the textbook open
Passed 30 minutes staring at them
Didn’t even move the pen
How the fuck am I supposed to be the best
If i can’t even know what I’m doing, how or when
